Hot out the oven, Brisbane’s Born Joy Dead return today with ‘Sourdough’, a brand new single for daydreamers and brunch enthusiasts everywhere. There’s no mucking about either, they’ll take to Black Bear Lodge to launch this freshly baked tune in just under three weeks.
A delicious, chewy ‘F.U.’ to the daily grind, ‘Sourdough’ is a unique result for the band who recently changed up their writing style, demoing together as a group for the first time. “The band is taking on a more organic songwriting method now and as a result it feels as though we’ve created something really special and more personal to us all,” says front man (and former Hungry Kids of Hungary member) Ben Dalton.
Springing onto the airwaves in 2015 with single’s ‘Hey Blood’, ‘Stones in My Shoe’ and ‘Chains On You’, Born Joy Dead have been building their chops among the local scene. Supporting the likes of Ball Park Music, Bad//Dreems, Hey Geronimo, Babaganouj and My Own Pet Radio they’ve also impressed at a stack of headline shows including a packed debut EP launch. Add a recent signing to Mucho Bravado management, an upcoming second EP and a September single launch. Bake at 180 degrees for best results.
